The Year of the Child Presidential Summit

Attorneys General have continued to focus their collective efforts on children and technology under the leadership of current NAAG President and Rhode Island Attorney General Patrick Lynch’s year-long Presidential Initiative, the Year of the Child. While the Internet has provided our children with a greater knowledge of the world in which they live, it has also exposed them to danger from individuals who would hurt them. The goal continues to be to better educate, engage and empower our children and their parents in the safe use of online technology.

Attorney General Lynch’s initiative will culminate in his policy summit, “The Year of the Child: Protecting and Empowering the Next Generation.” The Summit will be held on May 12-13 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in downtown Philadelphia. It will provide an opportunity for Attorneys General and other stakeholders to address the issues of safety and empowerment facing our children in today’s technology age.
